EDMONTON, November 14, 2016 – The Canadian Home Builders’ Association – Edmonton Region (CHBA-ER) is pleased to introduce Colin Wiebe as their 45th President. Colin succeeds Steve Ruggiero, President of Kimberley Homes Group. 

Colin Wiebe has been an integral member of the CHBA-ER over the past 5 years.  A law school graduate from the University of Kent in Canterbury, he serves on both the Edmonton Region and Alberta CHBA boards, including most recently as the Vice President, Edmonton Region.

The question becomes what will we do in 2017 to address this? Advocacy is a key strategic imperative for 2017. This will be one of our major goals to leverage the relationships that we re-built over the past 4 years to achieve results for our industry, association, and ultimately, our members.” said the newly elected CHBA-ER President at the recent Association annual general meeting.
